    Default Series 2 or 3: Questions about purchasing

    I'm unfamiliar with older Land Rovers and am looking to pick up one for beach/weekend fun and possibly to tow a smaller boat if necessary.

    Anyone on here have experience with a Series 2 or Series 3 Land Rover? I really like the look, they can be had for cheap, and it would be a fun project.

    Thoughts and feedback appreciated.

    I recently picked up an 03 Td5 for the exact same reason.
    Great daily driver with no real mods as yet (tinted glass & Coopers tires) tows great and looks good (if you are into that look).

    Not a bad price considering the electrics, turbo diesel, dvd player etc.

    Hopefully none of the famous gremlins yet!!

    Good luck

    If you've got Series questions, I'd ask the guys at D-90 Source:
    Series Technical Discussions - The D-90 Source
    '13 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Super Trofeo Stradale
    '11 Range Rover Sport Supercharged RSC600
    '97 Land Rover Defender 90

    so you went with the series 3? the series 2a has a much stronger gearbox, but it lacks sincro in first gear.
